The launch of Opera North's mainstage season was held at Harewood House where 90 donors, patrons and special guests celebrated with members of the Orchestra of Opera North.

During the event, this year's President's Award was presented by Dr Keith Howard to the Education Team for their exceptional work with young people, particularly through the In Harmony Opera North programme which gives 1,800 pupils every week the chance to learn to sing and to play a musical instrument. The season includes a rare performance of Martin's The Greek Passion and new production of Kurt Weill's Street Scene.
